OTL has Teething Troubles!

Hi Woofers!

Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret back again!

Wot a lot of weather we have had down here in North Kent! First it started off with a little mist followed by a bit of wind to blow it all away and then the sun was so bright you just couldn't the path ahead of you and that was just this morning!

Old Two Legs was all of a rush this morning 'cos he had an appointment with the dentist at ten thirty.

As soon as we got back from our walk Holly and I headed for the bed to catch up on the snoozing while the ferrets got their cages cleaned out. Of course, while the cleaning was going on the ferrets have the run of the house.

First up was Miss May and Eric de Ferret. Now as you know they are trying to get use to each other and their ways. Miss May still thinks she should be in charge and while they are running around it starts off with her chasing Eric and 'Donking' him on the back of his head. After a few 'Donks' he decides that she shouldn't be doing that and he then chases her to return the 'Donk'.

Miss May is a bit faster than Eric and she sets off at speed, diving in and out of the furniture and getting well ahead of Eric.

Then she stops, to let him catch up and just as it looks like he has caught her, she is off again!

All the time she is laughing her tail off or 'Dooking' as it is known.

Eric hasn't done any Dooking yet but he is making a noise that could be called a Dook, it is a sort of half a laugh!

He has only just found out how to wag his tail when hunting through the bedding and blankets that Holly and I call our bed!

Off went OTL to the dentist to have some work done on the front tooth that fell out before we went away on holiday. After a discussion with the dentist it was decided to remove the tooth root and fit a new tooth and anchor it to the tooth next door!

These dentist are right clever you know!

It was a good job  that OTL was in the dentist chair and lying horizontal when the dentist told him how much it was going to cost! It was also good that the nurse had some oxygen handy as well 'cos OTL came over all faint like!

Still, this stuff will take place over six months or so and the next visit is to remove the roots of the broken tooth!


He was back in time to take us out for the lunchtime walk and by now the wind had blown all the clouds away and it was bright sunshine!

Sunshine, a High Tide and I couldn't go swimming!
 It was almost high tide but I wasn't allowed to have a swim!

The groundsman had been out with his grass cutter and there were large areas that have been cut back which is great for the ferrets as they spent ages diving in and out of the piles of grass!

This is just great, loads of sniffs and we don't get lost! Now, where is Wendy!
Back home we found that Eric and May had been out again rampaging around the house and again chasing each other around the lounge.

OTL says that this is a good sign 'cos it means they are getting to know each other!

They have been running around in 'Game Mode' rather than in 'Beating You Up Mode' so we have high hopes for them.

The best result will be when OTL creeps into the office with his torch and finds they are cuddled up in bed together!

Claws Crossed!

See you all tomorrow.


Daisy, Holly, Miss May, Miss Wendy, Freddy and Eric de Ferret.


  1. Evening little maties down by the seaside. Sounds like OTL has had a very busy day even if you lot have been playing and snoozing. Good news that Miss May and Eric are playing a lot, hope it all goes well and she soon lets him share her bed so they can snuggle up together, you never know, with the cold weather coming, it might be sooner rather than later. Looks like Wendy and the fabulous Freddy were having fun in all that cut grass, hope Freddy found Wendy alright. That water looks very cold even if the sun is shining and didn't you have enough water on you yesterday Daisy? How's Holly chops tum? Hope it isn't giving her any problems. Now OTL is very brave, My mum says she bets he did need some oxygen and a lay down when the dentist told him how much it was going to be, my mum remembers going dizzy when the dentist told her how much it was going to be just to have a crown fitted. Do you know you can get 2 1/2 double glaze windows for the price of a crown? Our cracked window was replaced to day so we now have perfick windows for me to nose out of. The grass here was a bit crunchy when I went out for my first wee this morning, my mum says it's because Jack Frost has been around, now I knew I sniffed a sniff of something being in my garden over night. It was quite sunny for the rest of the day though. Loved the pictures OTL took today. Have a lovely evening, hope you get some decent muggings. Love, licks, wags and sniffs from little Arch and Mr Nipper xxxxxxxx

  2. Where was I yesterday, how did I manage to miss your post, yesterday was Wednesday, where did Wednesday go, now it is Thursday and I have replied to Thursdays post so why did I not call by yesterday, anyway I read it now and know all about how Eric is doing which it what I just asked after reading Thursdays post.
    There was a programme on TV last night where a couple were building a new house and winery, when they got short of money they did a Crowd Sponsor to raise £60,000. They did it with time to spare so I was wondering whether OTL could do a bit of Crowd Sponsoring to raise the money to build his new tooth. He has six months to raise the money but this couple had a vineyard business for their sponsors to see and get paid back, I hardly think OTL would do as good when he could only offer to chew their dinner for them!!!!
